BANK CLOSED AFTER SUICIDE OF' CASHI
A growing scandal rocks the Denton County town of
Lewisville with the closing of its First National
Bank and the announcement that 253-thousand
dollars in bank funds is missing. The FBI has
started an audit of the bank's book to determine
how the shortage occurred. The scandal began
Monday when examiners moved in for a routine check
of the books and was climaxed today with the
posting of notices that the bank had closed.
The closing of the bank follows the death last
Tuesday of the bank's cashier, 56-year-old
E.R. "Jake" Wolters. Wolters, who had worked for
the bank 35 years, was found shot to d eath in his
car, an apparent suicide. Officials said today
the illion-dollar shortage apparently had
accumulated over a three-year period.
